Description
The urban forest and the trees that comprise it play a crucial role in our developed landscapes. However, the growing conditions these trees face are often harsh, and few tree species are suited to withstand them. How can we support a greener landscape in the face of these challenges?  Matt Lobdell and Kim Shearer will discuss the growing conditions in urban and suburban landscapes. They will share how The Morton Arboretum selects and improves the best performing tree species for these areas and how new plant development has helped change the urban landscape. They’ll share a list of resilient tree selections recommended for planting in the Midwest.
